Don't ponder this question more than a few seconds and pick one shape that you feel best describes you. A silly question, perhaps, but your choice may say a lot about your core personality and the way you deal with the people and circumstances of your life. First, people are rarely 'pure' shapes, but a combination of a couple or even all four. Usually, there is a dominant 'shape' that appeals...for some reason... more than the others. Now pick a shape before reading on.
Let me give you a brief description of each personality 'shape.' Circles tend to be 'people pleasers'... they enjoy being with people and tend to be fun-loving. You may be caregivers/helpers and like to please others. This may sometimes result in over-committing because it can be difficult to say 'no.' We triangles can be confidant, (even competitive), and like to move fast and take charge. This quality sometimes leads to being argumentative, even with a hint of impatience. Rectangles are usually very organized, loyal and hardworking. Change can be difficult, at times and this 'shape' may find that they do their best work alone. Finally, the squiggle...certainly not a conventional shape as we know it, (remember this is only a 'triangle's' opinion). Squiggles tend to be very creative, with high energy and spontaneity. At times the squiggle can be easily distracted and may even respond without thinking.
I would like to thank Ms. Connie Podesta, an internationally acclaimed speaker for introducing me to this amusing, yet insightful exercise. Not only does it make for an engaging party, family gathering, team-building game, but you may discover something about yourself that can enhance your interpersonal relationships.
